I’m a huge fan of cooking and watching celebrity chefs like Raymond Blanc. What I love about him is the way he talks about vegetables and food, as if he were in a romantic relationship with them. I’m inspired by how he cooks his vegetables too. Instead of boiling them in water and pouring out the excess, he adds 5 grams of butter, a clove of garlic, Maldon sea salt, a dusting f pepper and a dash of water (100ml) to the pan and steams them for only 3-5 minutes. This leaves you with super tasty veggies and a jus to die for.
After dinner, I save the cooked green veg and put them in a Nutribullet with their liquid, adding some more boiled water to thin the soup to the right consistency. The result is a divine soup that I enjoy for lunch the next day. It’s a healthier and more fulfilling alternative to white factory toast or store-bought lunches. Making soup from leftovers brings a sense of abundance and gratitude for the gifts of Mother Earth. Eating up left overs will give you such pleaure and by acknowleding this more and more abundance will flow into your life. It’s all about experiencing the abundance the universe and mother earht give you. If you take notice more of it will begin to flow to you.
I highly recommend trying out this vegetable trick and making soup with your leftovers. You can use any vegetable, but here are a few that work well for me:
- Green asparagus
- Green beans (haricot verts)
Simply add them chopped with some butter, sliced garlic, sea salt, a dusting of pepper and 100 ml of water. Steam them for about 3-5 minutes until the water boils, but don’t strain the juice away. Keep it. Then blend the leftovers in a blender and voilà!
